Issa Says Washington Directed IRS Targeting Out of Cincinnati – Yahoo! News

By Arlette Saenz

WASHINGTON – The IRS agents in Cincinnati who were involved in the targeting of conservative groups were “being directly ordered from Washington,” Rep. Darrell Issa, R-Calif., said today, and he accused the White House of lying about the involvement of IRS headquarter officials in the scandal, calling White House Press Secretary Jay Carney a “paid liar.”

“The administration is still – their paid liar, their spokesperson, picture behind – he’s still making up things about what happens and calling this local rogue,” Issa said on CNN’s “State of the Union.” “The reason that Lois Lerner tried to take the Fifth [Amendment when called to testify before Congress] is not because there’s a rogue in Cincinnati, it’s because this is a problem that was coordinated in all likelihood right out of Washington headquarters And we’re getting to proving it.”

The administration is still trying to say there’s a few rogue agents in Cincinnati, when in fact the indication is they were directly being ordered from Washington,” he said.

Investigators from two House committees – Oversight and Government Reform and Ways and Means – are questioning IRS workers from the Cincinnati office, and Issa said these interviews provide evidence that the orders stemmed from Washington.
